When I want lasagna, I want unmistakable comfort food. This keto lasagna definitely fits the bill because it is nothing but the good stuff. No zucchini noodles to be found! The best part is this lasagna recipe can be made any night of the week. It’s that easy!

I am all about keto dinners that my whole family will eat. If I were to have put zucchini noodles or cabbage noodles in this keto lasagna…they would have turned their nose up really quick.
THE MEAT AND SAUCE LAYER
Our first layer of the lasagna is going to be our meat and sauce layer. This consists ground beef, Italian Sausage, and marinara sauce. I use a jarred sauce but you can slo make your own with my recipe for keto marinara sauce.
We cook that all together and then layer half of it in a 9×13 casserole dish.
THE RICOTTA CHEESE LAYER
This layer goes on top of the meat layer and it consists of ricotta cheese, egg, Italian seasoning and parmesan cheese. We put this entire mixture on top of our beef layer.
Now we layer the rest of the meat mixture on top.
And finally we top it with mozzarella cheese and parmesan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes or until it is nice and bubbly.
FREEZING KETO LASAGNA
If you want to freeze the whole lasagna, assemble it in a foil 9×13 baking pan and then wrap tightly with foil. Place in the freezer and keep frozen for up to 2 months. When you are ready to serve it, remove it from the freezer and bake in the oven until the internal temperature reaches 165F.
